    Default 21 years old and i think im starting to go bald.. What do i do?

    Hey guys, I'm 21 years old am worried that im going bald. I've always had a big forehead and a pretty shit hairline, but I'm starting to worry that im in the early stages of balding. I've read that at this age my hairline could be maturing, but this seems like much more than maturing. I'll post some pictures down below. Adivce very much needed thank you!

    Based on your photos it seems like you have thinning and miniaturization in the hairline. Id recommend seeing a hair loss physician to help evaluate your condition and give you options. Id also recommend looking into starting minoxidil 2x a day as well as groMD daily shampoo plus follicle activator spray www.gro.md

    I think this definitely is worth keeping an eye on - but at the same time, I request that you don't panic. The added stress won't do you or your health any good.

    First things first, meet with a dermatologist or hair restoration specialists simply to get a baseline evaluation. Many hair restoration specialists can measure the miniaturization levels of your hair which will really support in painting the full picture of what's going on.

    And no matter what you learn at either of these visits, do not rush into a procedure of any sort (should it even come to that). You are very young and you need to take whatever actions you take very seriously and do a lot of research. Come back to this forum once you have more information.

    I am a patient advocate for Dr. Parsa Mohebi in Los Angeles, CA. My opinions/comments are my own and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Dr. Mohebi and his staff.
